reaction coming in from the romney campaign. gloria borger is standing by on that front. both of these campaigns are bringing major surrogates to denver to appear in the so-called spin room after the debate tomorrow night. what are you learning about the romney campaign's people who are coming in? >> reporter: wolf, it's probably no surprise rob portman, mitt romney's chief sparring partner playing barack obama in the debate, he'll be in the spin room. but we've also learned that marco rubio, the rising star, senator from florida who had a prominent role at the republican convention, he will also be in the room. it's interesting to note this comes just as mitt romney's making some new gestures in some outreach, you could say, to the latino community. notable he will be there as well. >> very interesting. thanks very, very much, jim acosta in littleton, colorado. >>> all right. this just coming in to cnn. the results of our brand new poll among latinos all over the united states. certainly one of the country's fastest growing and increasingly important groups of voters. look at
-point leads in nevada and north carolina. virginia could be the bellwether. both the president and mitt romney campaigned there yesterday, and the latest poll shows the president with with a slight edge. let me bring in perry bacon and susan. good to see both of you. good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm sure you saw what charles cr krauthhammer wrote this morning. make the case and go large. it might just work and it's not too late. what do you think, susan? does mitt romney need to take risks and go big? >> one thing is for sure. the debate this week in denver on wednesday is a big deal for the romney campaign. he has to make his case, and he has to mak his case he's a better candidate than barack obama. he has to throw some punches. he can't just kind of go in there sort of apologetically and be very gentle with obama. he has to really throw some punches and show people why he's the better candidate. i think a lot of these polls are a little bit overstated. i think the democrats have been oversampled in a lot of polls, and i don't think there's that huge of a gap between romney and obama. n
and not the emotional side of things. nay are both a little bit aloof. but the clip we looked at where mitt romney loses it about the rules, that was the most impassioned we have seen that. but isn't it interesting he is not getting passionate out of issues, he is getting passionate because he feels like somebody is cheating him out of his time. >> jennifer: exactly. i'm fascinated by this though because speaking of process, the romney camp has said they are going to be fact checking the president during the debate. when somebody is accused of lying in a debate, you suggest doing the opposite of what elizabeth warren did recently. let's watch that. >> i think character is important. as you know i think what you are refer iffing to is the fact that professor warren claimed she was a person of color, and she is not. >> senator brown wants to raise an issue about my color, i'll lay it out there. when i was growing up these were the stories about my heritage. and i never asked for any documentation. >> jennifer: what was wrong with her answer? >> here is the problem you get into.
. both presidential candidates, president obama and governor romney are smart individuals. this is going to be a very good debate, because both are policy wonks and they're not afraid to answer a detailed question. >> nera, this morning chuck todd said to be honest -- they're both smart men, but neither is a great debater. he thinks the vice presidential debate will be a lot more interesting. however, mitt romney has 20 primary debates under his belt and president obama has none this time around. if you look at history, the past four incumbent presidents have had a difficult time in the first debate. give me your take on this. >> the president has had numerous press conferences. obviously piece asked questions about policy and he has to answer them. he has to practice having sharper answers, because you have a limited amount of time. i do think, though, that governor romney has a disadvantage in that he hasn't been very specific. he's going to have to be very specific. the president will hold him accountable to facts and figures. you know, the president knows his policies. at this point
and senate. and that trend reflects an increasing level of anxiety both with the nature of the romney campaign, and show president obama has a lead in swing states that some republicans think is insurmountable. do you think it's too soon? >> yes. you are going to see some anxiety, you are at a football game, and people start leaving for the exits way too early. >> jennifer: i think we're going to have to follow the money. though. peter after all of the millions that have already been donated how important it is for campaigns to get new funds with a month to go especially if there is a feeling that you are in a ship that is sinking? >> it is really important because you really need that last-minute push and it's not just television advertising, or the big bucks for station voters. it's to open the offices for the last month in some of these critical states. they know the nine states and what they have to do they are going to pour money into those states. and there are really close senate and house races. so they may want to put the money into those races. >> jen
obama people are expecting mitt romney to come with some prepared lines, and the truth is, for both men, this could be a game changer and so both men are working really hard prepping for it. the obama team has made a point of saying romney has prepped more than he has but obama's leaving on sunday for two or three day debate camp in nevada. they're prepping for it very hard. whether it's humor, whether it's one liners, they want their man to have their -- his best game on. >> ben, i want to ask you this, you don't have to mention doritos in your answer, isn't there a risk here that president obama feels like he's in the lead, like he's always been a cool, consistent speaker and he will pull back so far he might look sort of a little mellow in this debate? >> yeah. i think he's going to be -- it's a different situation. romney is going to be swinging and obama is going to be on defense. he doesn't want to screw up. >> we'll leave the word with buzz feed ben. follow this show on twitt twitter @nowwithalex for news and updates you're not going to get anywhere else. check out alex wagner on
romney screw up -- that is the kind of thing that cbs is not holding him accountable. both candidates will do the syrupy things but mitt romney is doing press conferences and obama has not been doing press conferences. you can look at the research on this. president obama has done more one-on-one said downs then press conferences. he likes to control the message and he would rather sit down with barbara walters and have her ask them what superpower he would like to have. host: fredericksburg, va., an airline for democrats -- -- on our line for democrats -- caller: i get tired of them talking about liberal, biased media. if there was, do you think they will allow george bush' to set p the war on allied? a lie? our country wanted to collapse, how many economic speculative to they have and the network? none of them do this? they talk about the kindness of mitt romney because he is a preacher -- printer or bishops at this church. isa pasture -- but pastor's not help his flock, you need to find another church. host: we will leave it there. guest: i don't think the news media has spent a lo
. >> and with a very different pitch, governor mitt romney. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> okay, seriously, why not vote now. what else do you need to know? we've had the primaries, endless political ads, direct mail. 24-hour political pundits online and on the airwaves dissecting every little tiny moment of this very long political cycle. what else is there left to be learned? after all, one of the biggest hurdles to voting as we have been telling you every week is access to the polls. so early voting should be an expansion of democracy. but, you know, i still kind of have to wonder, what does it say about the deliberative nature of democracy that many cast votes before the debates and the official closing arguments. i find myself agreeing, but narrowly, with newt gingrich here. let's embrace the essence of the lincoln doug
with senator john kerry and mitt romney is squaring off against senator rob portman. both candidates have challenges and checklists. president obama's working on shorter answers, trying to avoid sounding like the professor he was before the white house. democrats say he needs to look strong and forceful and not appear irritated or impatient. >> they're trying to get him into the mode of being able to answer questions, short, concisely, and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms and his style and the way he comes across as opposed to information in this. >> reporter: and mitt romney? he has to seem relatable, especially after his 47% comment. how can he do that? show compassion? show he's competent and connect with the voters? >> on those three cs that's where he really has got to do well. >> reporter: romney arrived in colorado to continue his debate prep but took a brief break to rally supporters. >> what an honor. what a welcome. what a colorado welcome. thank you so much. >> the prls president also took a break with a visit to the nevada campaign office. >> hi, this is
and mitt romney. some are calling these debates a make or break moment for romney with just 38 days left to election day. david joins us from the white house with an inside look at how both sides are prepping. >> heading back to boston for more debate practice, mitt romney would not endorse the view that the debates could be do or die for his campaign. >> i don't think anyone would suggest the debates aren't important. i can't tell you how important it will be. it will be a good chance for the president and for me to have a conversation with the american people about our respective views. >> mr. obama spent a couple of hours practicing yesterday as well and has three days set aside for more practice. it's nick namede debate camp. and near tend of camp like now it's a full-on mock debate following the time rules podeyums, the exact distance apart and fill-ins for the opposition. preparing joe biden. >> it's only tense when they give the completely wrong answer. the goal is to make them feel like they're as real as possible. >> she believ
and ohio behind in both. we were laughing about the expectations setting on both sides but, governor romney has to shake things up, wednesday night, doesn't he. >> he is going to. every time mitt romney has been confronted in this campaign with one of these moments he has come through in a debate and performed extraordinarily well, laying out his vision very clearly and also contrasting himself and his vision with whoever his opponent was at that time. i have absolute confidence, george, all you will be shaking your head it is a brand new race. jenna: new jersey governor chris christie, making a bold prediction, how about that? the bold prediction related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larry sabato, director of center for politics at the university of virginia. larry, historically speaking how bi
. >> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in their first debate. both candidates on screen on c- span. on c-span2, the multi camera version of the debate. follow our live coverage on c- span, c-span radio, and online at c-span.org. host: joining us now is gary johnson, former governor of mexico. he is the libertarian nominee. look at the major party candidates. what is missing in the debate and what do you bring to the table? guest: how about the truth, for starters. the notion that obama and mitt romney are arguing over who will spend more on medicare. if we do not divided by medicare spending, i think we will find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse. host: what are you saying on that issue/ what is your prescription? guest: i oversaw the reform of medicaid when i was governor of new mexico. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars. the government blocked -- done away with the strings and the manas, i could have overseen the delivery of health care to the poor. health care for those over 65. get the federal government out of health care completely. that is how we're going t
of second fiddle. moderating his positions on both fiscal and cultural issues to conform to romney's views. well, now that romney/ryan campaign is coming off a bit of a couple rough weeks there. some conservatives have just got the answer. simply let ryan be ryan. that was the advice they dished to "the new york times" today. but is that really the smart move, really? joan walsh is editor-at-large of salon and author of "what's the matter with white people." and eugene robinson is a pulitzer prize win be columnist from "the washington post." i think there are problems marrying paul ryan politically like his positions. isn't that the reason why romney kissed him, said good-bye, i like your name, ryan is cute, but i'm not going to get too close to a guy who wants to basically get rid of medicare, cut medicaid, get rid of pell grants and do all kinds of things to make rich people richer. he doesn't want to get too tight with that thinking, does he? >> no, he doesn't. this is a really banner day for us because it's so rare that liberals and conservatives can agree about anything, as you know,
think it will remain? >> i think time will tell. there's certainly an effort on the part of both president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, to have a serious second look at sanctions, to try to figure out what additional economic measures are necessary to bring iran's nuclear program to heel. i think that, to a large extempt, is going to determine whether there is military action against iran. quite simply, the sanctions we've applied so far are not having the requisite impact on iran, and more needs to be done. jenna: that was a very interesting editorial in the ine washington post" this week, you said just to review for our viewers, the sanctions are working in some ways, they're not working in others, and can they need to be enforced greater, in your opinion. let's talk about what the american people should expect or trust in this process. you know, why should the american people trust diplomacy when it comes to iran? has there been any evidence that sanctions or diplomacy in the past has worked with this regime and this country? >> well, those are two separat
weeks to go and political advertisers are out in full force. mitt romney is going direct to camera in his new appeal to the middle class. >> president obama and i both care abouter poor and middle class families the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> he goes on to say his policies would create 12 million jobs over the next four years. but in fact checkers say those jobs would happen no matter who is president. americans for job security is out warning voters in six swing states about the consequences of reelecting the president. and with todd akin officially staying in the race claire mccaskill is gearing up her campaign attacking his legitimate rape marks. and we have to show you thissed a from new hampshire libertarian party. the ad shows him taking on a horde of democrat and republican zombies and yelling we are not a mindless society. he does star in theed a but his campaign didn't pay for or produce the spot. more bill after the break. stay with us. ♪ trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the wo
but if you're in the nfl, by all means talk about who you want for president. >> maybe mitt romney wasn't bluffing when he said of some his best friends own nfl teams. >> john: he said nascar teams i thought. >> no, he said it about both. >> john: he'll probably buy the show and i will be -- >> the creator of the hit animated comedy family guy has been capped to host the next academy awards ceremony. seth mcfarlane made his debut with ted also behind american dad will take the stage at the oscars in february. last year it was hosted by billy crystal. >> you didn't say also created the cleveland show. >> sorry, the what? >> john: no one's talked about the cleveland show. are you excited about seth hosting? >> i think it will be great. it will be fantastic. >> john: he will be very funny although it is the sort of thing that seth mcfarland would make fun of. >> i think he'll do a fine job but i would expect him to make fun of the spectacle that is the oscars so now that he's part of it it is time to grow up and sell out.
. but one of the big problems for romney is that 47% video which is being looked at time and time again, both in ads and on the news. and let me just also say though, that, you know, these polls are still a snapshot. things could change. i suspect they might well get a little closer in this race. people might say the momentum is going to go another way. but what is so interesting to me is what republicans that i know in washington are saying to me, and that is that their own polling shows trending moving away from romney in a very worrisome way. and that they think they're headed for a train wreck, unless something very surprising happens in some kind of rabbit or event is pulled out of a hat. >> before we go i have to ask you, governor. we've seen another poll that shows you leading rick scott in a hypothetical governor's race in 2014. are you thinking about it? >> i'm thinking about re-electing president obama and that's awfully important. we only have 40 days to go. that's what the focus needs to be. this is probably the most important election we have. i think the country is at a cr
slow with both men trying to be cautious, neither able to land a punch. then it will happen. romney will deliver what is clearly a prerehearsed moment, a sound bite, something about obama not delivering on a promise, something about the economy. he will expect the president to defend himself. and when he does, romney will pounce. he'll say obama is not running again bush. get obama to pass the buck on the tough kmeeconomic recovery land his sunday punch. i suppose president obama knows this is all coming and is preparing to do with it. a month ago all romney had to say was obama has done his best, got his stimulus, his health care program and here we are. i think that might have nailed it a month ago. but something's changed. it could be something as definite ace bill clinton's speech. that's romney's problem and it's a big one. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >> good evening americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 39 days until the 2012 election and five days until the first presidential debate. voter fraud is alive and healthy. tonight we rip the cover o

be relevant at this time because we have a struggle between both parties. i think we already have one called independents. host: thank you. the front page of the new york times. mitt romney coming up short with undecideds. a new poll is expected to come out following the first presidential debate. house democrats already writing their wish list hoping the president is really elected. they are placing a focus on jobs and the economy and also discretionary issues like immigration, climate change, housing, and even a return to health care. it would lend the president a new fistful of political capital as he confronts republican leaders about how to steer the country through the next four years. his allies in the house are offering tips on how to spend it. next is kevin from massachusetts on the republican line. caller: good morning. i loved ross perot in the 1992. i love his pointer and his board. he got his point across with his pointer. people do not want that. like one caller said, we spend more time watching these crazy shows on tv that are more important in getting our country on track. wi
, trying to keep his head clear so he will avoid getting hurt. it will start with both then staying cautious, not hard enough to register with the tens and millions watching. then it will happen, romney will deliver a prerehearsed sound bite, something about the economy. he said you do but hasn't. he expects the president to dep fend himself and when he does, romney will pounce. he will say that obama's not running against bush and get obama to pass the buck on the tough economic recovery and then land his sunday punch. i suppose president obama knows this is all coming and is preparing to deal with it. the good news is this. a month ago, all his rival had to say was that obama's done his best. he got his stimulus, health care program and here we are. i think that might have nailed him a month ago but something's changed. it could have been something as definite as bill clinton's speech but people don't feel stuck like they did. they think all we need is some other president. that's romney's problem and it's a big one. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsna
tell you, living in washington and traveling around the country, i think you both know here in massachusetts, there is such a disgust with washington because of dysfunction and washington does not work. the question about bipartisanship here, senator, let me ask you this. you said a mitt romney that he is one of your strongest and earliest backers. he said it comes to dealing with the economic issues, there is no one i would trust more than governor romney. would you be a reliable ally of a president romney? >> i think he pointed out in your initial comment about this functionality in washington. when i went down there, i thought it was dysfunctional. when i got there, it was even worse. it still is. if you see it everyday. in speaking to the independent voters of massachusetts and being that independent of voice. i spoke about 50% with my party and 50% with the other party. that is a lot different than what professor warren would do. i need not work for anybody. i cannot work for president obama, mitt romney, mitch, harry reid -- i work for the people of massachusetts. i am
of both scott brown and elizabeth warren. the fact that he did not want to be associated very clearly did not want to be associated with mitt romney was interesting and definitely trying to put sun light between him and the obstructionist congress he is a part of. what did you make of it? >> absolutely. that's one of his keys to victory to try to get that crossover vote, folks who will vote for barack obama for president but do not want to send an all democratic ticket to washington. but when he's saying well, he said to mitch mcconnell he wasn't satisfied with the direction in which congress was going and would he vote for him, mitch mcconnell is the only republican on the ballot for senate majority leader so if you don't vote for him you're going to be excommunicated. he has to go with mitch mcconnell. i found that fascinating. the supreme court justice answer, scalia known to be a favorite amongst republicans, prime probably not going to do well with independent in the state of massachusetts. the most important number here is that amount of folks undecided in the state, 18%, and why is
some changes? >> i think candidates have to have their own campaigns. we both lived this. >> right. >> the campaigns are set for good or bad by the candidate. romney's at a perfect point for a guy who used to take over businesses and turn them around. >> would you turn this campaign around if you were in charge of it? >> my advice to romney is that he has very specific things they have to do. start with the candidate. and i agree with dee dee for example. they have to ask themselves why after two and a half weeks of a disaster in benghazi are they not dominating the issue? what do they have to change to dominate the issue? that starts with the candidate not the campaign. >> that does start with the candidate. and his ability to bring in other people like bill clinton brought in other people who have been critical of the president around the table for the first three and a half years. i think if he gets re-elected that will change with an eye toward history and i think he'll have to do it especially if republicans pick up seats in the senate and win the house. but mitt romney has th
'm barack obama, and i approve this message. [ female announcer ] he says... president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. [ female announcer ] but this is what the budget plan mitt romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? >>> silver ball. >> but what is it? >> at nats park. >> okay. >> okay. >> oh, i see. we're looking at it from a different angle than usual. you're right. okay. >> it is that nat-itude tony. >> it is. and we're very happy. it didn't seem sincere but we are. >> and tucker barnes, you can tell, he is rocking it. >> good for you, tucker. but before you get to the weather, you have something else for us? >> yes, this is always our favorite thing. this time now for my first five photo of the day. uh-oh. we have landon, everybody. and we say hello
